COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Epic by name, epic by nature, this Farmhouse Ale is a transcontinental fusion of Belgium’s eclectic beer culture and the feisty hops of North America brought to life with the aid of West Country artisanal brewing wizardry and judicious use of the US-grown Sorachi Ace hop. On the nose, the hops deliver a big splash of tropical fruit, followed by ripples of well-seasoned spiciness spreading outwards. In the mouth a tangy, bittersweet fruitiness holds sway, while tangerine oranges tap dance their way across the tongue in the finish.

floydian1 (1005) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 18, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy orange beer with a big fluffy transient white head that laces nicely. Nose has grains, citrusy fruits (oranges mainly) and mild barnyard earthy grassy yeasty notes. Flavours are satisfyingly bittersweet with a light peppery dry hop finish. Palate is less full bodied than many other saisons but this makes for more sessionability which is ok in my book. Another winner from this very commendable brewery.

Bottle. Fruity aroma of white grape and pineapple and apple. Hazy, effervescent pale orange under a lasting, white cover. Woody dry flavour with vinous white grape, cranberry, and pear notes. Light body, high carbonation, crisp and refreshing.

Underdogs88 (109) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Lemon peel hop aroma with pepper spices in the background. Appearance is yellow with a big white head with good retention. Flavor is full of citrus zest notes. Pepper notes are present in the background. The beer is sweet upfront but dry on the end. Mouthfeel has a medium body and a high level of carbonation. Overall, it's a decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

About 2 weeks ago, I went to Brighton, I stayed in a hotel. The hotel was good but the beer selection at the bar was pretty appalling. Thanks to CBC Brighton, I didn’t have to touch any of that shit. So this is what I picked up from CBC. Lovely pub by the way. I’ll pay a proper visit soon. Yeah so beer..subtle character and smooth finish. A bit spicy here a bit fruity there. Enjoyable enough.

Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14 (I’m keeping this a little shorter than my normal rating style to help catch-up my backlog a little faster)
I thought this was a pretty solid beer. The grain and spice notes go nicely with the fruity component. Doesn’t blow you away, but very solid stuff.

tmoreau (2472) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with an abundant & persistent cloud of frothy, soft white head foam, and clingy ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was light greenery & mint, with subtle mango & orange. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste continued the mild esters, with a bit of perky tartness, and a lightly dry finish. Understated, but refreshing, and very quaffable!
